Prepare for the property division phase of divorce

If you have decided to end your marriage, you may feel overwhelmed by the very thought of dividing property during your divorce.

Property division can be a complex and sometimes confusing undertaking. However, if you prepare in advance, the process will go more smoothly than you anticipate.

How will a move affect your child custody agreement?

Since your divorce four years ago, you and your 11-year-old son Andy and the other parent have settled into a routine that has worked well, but that is about to change.

The company you work for has offered you a promotion, and that means relocation for you and your son. How will this affect your child custody agreement?

Could mediation be the best option for ending your marriage?

When you and your spouse approach divorce, there are so many things to think about and so many emotions to work through.

Neither of you may look forward to a lengthy and expensive court proceeding, to say nothing of the stress involved. If you can continue to work as a team, mediation may be a viable option for you.

Be mindful of what you say on social media during your divorce

Social media has become an essential aspect of daily life for many people in Indiana. It is a platform that encourages the sharing of news, feelings and opinions, activities and business. It is also a place where separating couples air their dirty laundry, search for evidence to use against their spouses in divorce court and post things to upset their ex-partners. Before you get to spying or posting information to knock your ex-spouse off her or his square, you may want to consider why it is prudent to watch what you do and say on social media during a divorce. 

If you are not careful, your social media activity can damage your credibility and derail your divorce and child custody case. Your online activities can become admissible as evidence in the courtroom, even if what you post is not true. Though you have the right to use your social media profiles in any way you see fit as long as you remain in compliance with the site’s terms, when it comes to divorce, the judge may rule otherwise. 

Understanding legal separation versus divorce

When two parties decide to become one through marriage, most do not do so with the expectation of not staying together for the rest of their lives. However, in some instances, spouses may feel that the union should end.

For those who are not completely sure, or those who have unique situations and obligations, a legal separation may be a better option than divorce. To determine if this is the case, it is important to understand the difference between the two.

Should infants stay overnight with each parent?

As you head toward the negotiation table to discuss matters of your divorce with your spouse, you may be particularly anxious when it comes to the conversation regarding the infant child the two of you share.

You want what is best for your child, but you have developed a strong attachment with your baby. Is it really best for him or her to be away from you overnight? 

Know your rights as a father in divorce

When it comes to divorce with children, a lot of attention is given to mothers and their rights regarding child custody. This often leaves fathers feeling left out and excluded from the process of determining equitable visitation and time with their children.

Fathers do have rights when it comes to parenting, child custody, and visitation arrangements in a divorce. As a father, you should feel comfortable exercising these rights to ensure that you can maintain a healthy and solid relationship with your children both during and after the divorce process.

Considerations for legal separation

Though couples may go through hard times, for some divorce is not the answer. In such cases, legal separation may be a viable option

For those contemplating this type of separation, it is important to understand all that it entails. Here are a few key things to consider about a legal separation.
